The “Bless the Food Industry’s Heart” Episode of the Foodcast is Now Live

Don’t panic. There is no episode 0013 of The Foodcast. I just skipped that unlucky number 13 and went to 14. In this episode of The Karma Sense Foodcast, I rant about deceptive health claims the food industry makes about their products.

I also interview Jackie Oken of Unified Health Coaching. She’s a seasoned veteran in the health and wellness who’s worked as a practitioner and educator. Jackie shares her tips for healthy eating. They make a lot of Karma Sense.

Finally, Jackie and I go on a Healthy Food Scallawag Scavenger Hunt during which we parse through the deceptive claims in products you can pick up in any supermarket.
